This week the FDA announced a serious dog food warning that as of September 24, 2013 the FDA has received more than 3,000 complaints of pet illness related to consumption of chicken, duck, or sweet potato jerky treats, nearly all of which are imported from China. The reports involves more than 3,600 dogs and includes more than 580 deaths. This is absolutely horrible!
Apparently some of the name brands include Nestle Purina PetCare Co.’s Waggin Train and Canyon Creek Ranch treats and Del Monte Corp.’s Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats. The treats involved are chicken, duck and sweet potato jerky treats. All of them are made in China, but sold under various American brand names. If you have any jerky treats, please check the label and check the distributor’s website to see if there are any applicable recall notices.
Here is a link to an NBC News story on the subject.
